This kit includes 14 pieces including 10 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are both easy and challenging and some require some household objects such as water or paperclips. The set though was fun on its own for us. My boys were amazed at how the magnets would stick together one way and not the other way. I started teaching them about polar opposites, magnetism and science in general. The pieces that this kit comes with are ones that I would have never thought of using together. There is a big horsehoe magnet perfect to work little magnetic ladybugs through a maze. Ring magnets and a magnetic post are fun because you can make the magnetics float on the pole. My sons favorite though is the Snap-on Cars. You can push the cars together and watch them spin away from one another or magnetically snap them together to zoom around. This is a simple kit but fun and perfect for young learners.
First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work.
A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun.
The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way!
I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!
This is the third Science set we have purchased from Primary Science and find that they are solid, sturdy & age appropriate for small children.
